Use converters in remote desktop connection

Use the ProperConvert app to convert your transaction files to required by your accounting software file format.

When you are using a remote desk connection, open the browser there and navigate to the CSV2QBO page and download the installer. Start the installer and confirm elevated admin privileges. If you need to contact your admin to install the software, please do this. If it takes more time to contact your admin, try to download the portable version that does not require the installation - simply unzip the download and run it.

To use a Windows app in a remote desktop connection, you will need to set up a remote desktop connection on your computer. This allows you to access and use the app on a remote computer as if you were using it on your local computer.

Here's how to set up a remote desktop connection on a Windows computer:

Open the Start menu and type "Remote Desktop Connection" into the search bar.

Click on the "Remote Desktop Connection" app to open it.

In the "Computer" field, enter the IP address or hostname of the remote computer you want to connect to.

If you want to save the connection for future use, click the "Show Options" button and then click the "Save As" button.

Enter a name for the connection and click "Save."

Click the "Connect" button to establish a connection to the remote computer.

When prompted, enter the username and password for the remote computer.

Once you are connected, you can use the app on the remote computer just as you would on your local computer. If you have any difficulty setting up the connection or accessing the app, you may need to contact the administrator of the remote computer for assistance.

Once you start the app, select a transactions file on the file dialog, and review transactions. If your CSV file does not have the column header, click Review mapping to map the columns if needed. Click the 'Convert' button to create the QBO file.

In QuickBooks, select File-Utilities-Import-Web Connect file... and point to the QBO file.
